I’ve kind of been into individual desserts lately and what better time to share these raspberry cream and brownie trifles for two than right before Valentine’s Day! You could definitely share one, but when it comes to sweets, sharing just isn’t in my nature! This sweet treat is the perfect dessert for a romantic night in or an easy dessert for a chocolate lover. This easy recipe is light but filling with rich brownies and delicious raspberries. Such an easy Valentine’s Day dessert idea but looks like a millions bucks, and taste like you got it at a fancy restaurant.
Even though this dessert looks absolutely fabulous, don’t let it fool you that it’s super sweet. Both the raspberry and chocolate kind of even each other out and make for the most perfect combination of flavors.
You could certainly double the recipe and make a classic trifle size. It definitely would wow the crowds and having everyone coming back for seconds.
Feel free to use your favorite brownie recipe, box or even store bought ones, note: you only need 4 brownie squares total.
